Bringing you the best in Horror Movie News, and all things Horror.
Near the end of last year we Twentieth Century Fox officially green lit the long awaited INDEPENDENCE DAY 2, and setting the film on track for a 2016 Summer release. That means The alien invasion sequel will be hitting the big screen almost exactly 20 years after the original.
It is no secret that Will Smith will not be returning to star in the sequel but that isn't stopping this machine. When producer Dean Devlin and director Roland Emmerich first began the serious talks of doing a sequel to INDEPENDENCE DAY, the plan was to make two sequels which would shoot simultaneously. Today we have some fresh news on the subject.
With production already underway we have learned that actor William Fichtner has officially joined the cast for INDEPENDENCE DAY 2. He will be portraying a lead role as a top general. Not only that, but Fichtner has signed on to do three films, that is if Twentieth Century Fox were to make two more sequels. This comes as big news as the original plan was to make two more movies and then it was just the one was slated. Now with three new ID4 flicks on the horizon, we can only wait and see what time will bring.
Fichtner joins a cast that includes Jeff Goldblum, Vivica A. Fox, Judd Hirsch, Bill Pullman, Brent Spiner, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Liam Hemsworth, Joey King, Maika Monroe, DeObia Oparei, Jessie Usher, and Sela Ward.
INDEPENDENCE DAY 2 will be in theaters June 24, 2016.
